What Cars Have You Driven???

What are all the cars you have driven in your life, what color were they, and which has been your favorite?

I got my driver's liscense in 1994. Here's the list of cars I've had since then...

1989 Mazda 626 - maroon
1994 Nissan Stanza - gray
1997 Saturn sl2 - forrest green
1999 Ford Ranger - deep red
1995 Volvo 850 - green

My wife and I now have...

1999 Ford Ranger (same car as above, we traded the Volvo back and forth with my parents)
2006 Honda Odyssey - gold

Along the way, since we've been married Emily also has driven...

1996 Honda Accord - silver
1998 Toyota Avalon - white

That's 8 different cars in 13 years of driving. That's a lot of stinking cars. My favorite has been my truck, the Ranger.

Are you scared of commitment with a car? Is that why you've had so many. Me, I had the 1991 Toyota Truck forever, up until about 2004 when I finally got rid of it, right before it blew up. I bought a 2002 Honda Civic which I am currently driving. It is the best car in the world. Hondas are fantastic and I think I'll keep buying them in the future.

I got my driver's license the same year, but have had much fewer cars.

1965 Mustang V-8
1993 Mustang straight-4
1990 Toyota long bed pickup (the wife's)

current:
2002 Mazda Protege DX (2.0 liter)
2004 Nissan Frontier King Cab 4-cylinder

Believe it or not, my favorite is the wee Mazda Protege. The old Mustang was nice, but it had no air conditioner and Dad geared it for a slow start. The Mazda has a sport suspension and a peppy 2.0 liter. It handles very well and gets me going as fast as I want to go. It's also been over 70K miles with no problems... other than the user inflicted ones on a slick road. The Mustangs, however, did have the phattest sound systems. I'll give them that.

oops. Forgot the colors. From the top: red, white, maroon, black mica, sand dune tan.

1994? 1994? You youngster!

Got my license in 1981.

Before that I drove a 1977 Honda Express motor scooter. Top speed 27 mph!

1968 Delta 88 Oldsmobile (White / 455 cc's / 5 mpg! - Parents' car...)
1979 Ford Mustang (Dark Orange - New Wife's car...)
1986 Chevy Cavalier (Red - Actually first car I bought.)
1988 Mazda B2200 Pickup (All Mine! - Dark Blue - Best vehicle I ever had, hands down.)
2001 Mitsubishi Montero Sport (Dark Blue)

I'd actually like to get a Mini Cooper in the days ahead ... if my wife will let me. ;)

Geoff...

A Mini Cooper would fit you well. You should customize it like those in the movie Italian Job.
